Biography of John Cardrick. Sales & Marketing Innovator responsible for the Fabergé Brut 33 phenomenon in the 1970's. Selecting Henry Cooper to front the TV advertising with 'Splash it all Over' was described as a stroke of genius and signing-up Barry Sheene for Fabergé Racing after his high speed crash in Dayton, when his chances of ever winning the World Motor Cycle Championship were written off by all the pundits, a bold decision. Barry went on to win the world title in 1976 and 1977. Brut 33 had been rejected as not suitable for the UK market when John joined the company. When he pitched his plan for the product to George Barrie, owner and founder of the Fabergé Fragrance Company, Cary Grant, brand ambassador and shareholder was not keen on the idea. However, after only 18 months trading, John's sales trebled the turnover of Fabergé UK, the value of Cary's shares soared and he took a friendly interest in John's activities.The catalyst for Fabergé Racing was Stuart Graham a racing driver competing in the British Saloon Car Championship in a 5.7 litre Chevrolet Camaro. John offered him sponsorship and the Brut 33 Camaro made its debut under the Fabergé Racing banner in September 1974. In October Stuart won the prestigious RAC Tourist Trophy and again in 1975, making him one of only five drivers to score back to back victories in a race which was first run in 1905. He joined the ranks of Stirling Moss, Graham Hill and Denny Hulme. His car, resplendent in Brut 33 livery, is often on display in the Silverstone Museum. Like so many of the marketing tools John employed, Fabergé Racing was excellent value for money. He launched Brut 33 with a sales force of only five at a time when large sales forces and high sales costs were accepted to ensure the widest possible distribution. John shattered that myth with a year on year sales cost of under 3%. John's life story is all the more remarkable in that he left school at the age of 15 without any qualifications, yet achieved so much and made so many friends along the way. His long friendship with Henry Cooper, which extended way beyond his 12 years with Fabergé, saw him meet many of Henry's showbiz friends from The Grand Order of Water Rats. Henry was King Rat in 1980. When John left Fabergé in 1984 he was appointed managing director of Magnivision, a company selling the leading brand of over the counter reading glasses in America. The sale of such glasses through F W Woolworth had been common place in the UK until the National Health Act of 1948 when it was banned. It took 4 years of making sales by challenging the law, getting public opinion on his side and lobbying both Houses of Parliament, but eventually, after 40 years of monopoly the law was changed.

In this two act play Sally tries to put her life, and the world too rights with her friend. Some might say they make it even more complicated! I’ve always loved the intimacy of the theatre monologue. There’s usually just one performer, and the live audience. The topics can be endless. They might reveal a secret, or a good, or sad memory. They might be a moment from childhood, or a significant relationship, or the loss of one. Indeed, life itself might be called one endless monologue because there’s always a story to tell. I hope you enjoy them.

Sticks and Stones and other Shenanigans is the inspiring story of martial arts instructor extraordinaire Mick Shore, born in Doncaster in 1968 of Irish and Anglo-Indian heritage. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” so the saying goes, but Mick Shore was to learn that names do indeed hurt. However, he never let anyone see him cry; instead, he used the hateful name calling to make him stronger. Raw truths from the son of an Irishman, former victim of bullying and accomplished all round martial artist in the world of martial arts. Did you know...? In the 18th Century, the faction fighters of Tipperary used to gather together in groups or “fighting factions” to do battle with each other over territory or land disputes. This fighting involved the use of bata or clubs and when the law prohibited the carrying of a club or gavel, the fighters extended these bata to the length of a walking cane to get around the new law. Often the bata had the end or knob filled with lead for greater striking power in combat and this later became known as a shillelagh. In these battles the men would sometimes be accompanied by their wives as backup. These women would put stones into handkerchiefs and using these like a slingshot would throw them at the enemy. As a result, they were referred to as stone throwers or stone chuckers. The men and fighting women of Tipperary were fierce and the faction fighting spread throughout the south of Ireland with the last being held in 1887 in Cappawhite near Cashel, Co Tipperary, only a few miles from where Mick’s family are from and where his father was born.

The Biggest Gang in Britain - Shining a Light on the Culture of Police Corruption

Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-06-04 - Publisher: Grosvenor House Publishing

A hard hitting, brutally honest account of police work during the late 1960's and 1970's. Whilst explicit, it is often humorous, refreshing and equally unbelievable. In this ?rst book of a trilogy the author takes the reader through his early police service and in doing so reveals many working practices which in reality have become a culture of dishonesty, lies and often stupidity which has been accepted by the Government of the day, the judiciary and the public at large for many years. That is until the present day when it has all gone so wrong. Very, very wrong with the revelations of the Hillsborough Investigation, the Jimmy Savile Investigation, so many more and even 'Plebgate' when The Biggest Gang believed they were so powerful that evidence against Andrew Mitchell, a member of Her Majesty's Government left so many questions, yet to be answered. This book explains that such examples are not typical of a minority rogue element as being claimed but are a dishonest culture, born so long ago but allowed to fester and grow with the many examples and revelations which have continued until today with Hillsborough as only one shocking example.

Michael W. Smith has seen with clarity the spriritual poverty and emotional numbness of teens who are out of touch with God's love. He writes, "Somewhere along the way, I had forgotten what the real world was like. But something was starting to break inside of me. God began to renew a heart of compassion for the lost. From then on, I decided that if God was opening a door for me, I wasn't going to waste any time making up my mind about entering it." It's Time to Be Bold is a call to commitment for all believers, a personal and heartfelt cry rallying youth to follow Christ's example. Drawing from events in his own life, Michael dicusses with relevance the essential issues of living out extreme faith. Topics include: The importance of Christian friends Standing stong against Satan's attacks Using crises as stepping stones to deeper faith Getting into the Word and growing in a lifestyle of prayer An Xt4J book
